Bring cash in one dollar bill increments. There is an honor system setup for entrance fees to the trails. $3.00 per vehicle +$1 per person for more than two people. Even though it is an honor system, it is enforced by local Wildlife and Fisheries.

The main access trail to the Clark Creek Natural Area is a well maintained gravel path between 6 and 10 feet wide. There are stairs installed as alternate routes down and up the steep inclines with resting areas/benches at intervals. There are also stairs at several waterfalls.

From Woodville, MS: Take Highway 969/Pickneyville Rd. Turn right on Fort Adams Pond Rd.
From St. Francisville, LA: Take Highway 61 North, turn left on Highway 66, turn right on Highway 969/Pickneyville Rd., turn left on Fort Adams Pond Rd.

The parking lot is relatively small and during peak times you will need to park along the edge of the access road. There are outhouses for men and women at the parking area. There is an old general store approximately .75 miles before the parking area where drinks and snacks can be purchased.

Worth the two hour drive for me. Long and strenuous but the rare sight of waterfalls in the south make it worth it. Read my full review and things you should know before visiting this trail at my blog:

love this trail. multiple waterfalls, and an ecosystem that is totally different from typical Louisiana. Go in the spring, when the water is flowing.

Awesome Trail!! Was much more challenging than I thought and much longer. You have to be well prepared! Bring enough water (we had water bottles so got water from the springs) and full belly. Make sure you get there early. It got dark when we got out and we almost got lost at one point. But there are reflectors so that helped.

This was a great trail to hike! Someone was even kind enough to leave two walking sticks near the entrance.

The trail can be a little confusing at times, but it is fun and refreshing especially during the summer. This trail does require some physical fitness and it is definitely more than 2.6 miles; I would say somewhere near 6 miles

I have hiked this trail over a dozen times in the last year. I've never been disappointed. I have even got caught in a huge downpour once and the creeks were impassable due to the flash flooding. Even though you are under a hardwood tree canopy nearly the entire time, it would be wise to bring plenty of water in the summer.

Excellent, pristine natural beauty. Unlike anything in south Louisiana or Mississippi. The geology is so different from the surrounding area. I would recommend this to anyone. Very good hike. Multiple Waterfalls.

A challenging trail, and often muddy. It is not clearly marked at places, so be prepared to hunt for markers. Overall quite enjoyable
